New Testastretta DVT 1262
Thanks to the new Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 cm3 Euro 4 engine, the new Multistrada 1260 is now even more pleasurable for everyday use thanks to the increased torque at low and mid-range engine speeds. The new Multistrada 1260 is the motorcycle with the highest torque value in its category standing at 4,000 rpm, which is the average rotation rate most commonly used when driving.
In addition to the dedicated racing inspired livery, the new Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak is equipped with new forged aluminium wheels, an exceptional 3 kg lighter than those used on the new Multistrada 1260 S. The sporting spirit of the new Multistrada 1260 is boasted in this Pikes Peak version inspired by the legendary American hill climb competition. The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, also called “”the climb into the clouds””, is held in a Rocky Mountains area just 16 miles west of Colorado Springs, over a distance of 20km from the starting line, at an altitude of 2,862 meters, and the finish line at an altitude of 4,300 m. It is a gruelling race won by Ducati bikes on three different occasions. The Pikes Peak version is born starting from the electronic base of the new Multistrada 1260 S, hence exploiting the new introduced features such as the Euro 4 approved 1262 cm3 Ducati Testastretta DVT engine, and the renewed chassis measurements that boast a restyled front end and a longer swingarm. In addition to the dedicated racing inspired livery, the new Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak is equipped with new forged aluminium wheels, an exceptional 3 kg lighter than those used on the new Multistrada 1260 S. Additional features are the Öhlins for and the Öhlins TTX36 rear shock, both completely mechanically adjustable. In addition to the silencer and headlight fairing included in the standard outfit, the new Pikes Peak also features an EU-approved Ducati Performance by Termignoni carbon silencer and a low carbon racing style windscreen. The carbon fibre components also include the front mudguard, front fuel tank cover and front side bulkheads, while the red stitched seat has been specially designed to enhance the racing character of this Multistrada.
